PREMIER LEAGUE : Manchester City v Manchester United – TEAM NEWS



Manchester City midfielder David Silva will miss Sunday’s derby against Manchester United in the Premier League after being ruled out for around three weeks with a knee injury. Fellow midfielder Yaya Toure is expected to feature despite being withdrawn during Wednesday’s Capital One Cup loss to Newcastle amid concerns about a groin problem. Former England midfielder Frank Lampard is still expected to be absent with a thigh injury but playmaker Samir Nasri appeared to make a successful return in midweek from groin surgery.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is available after serving a three-match suspension. Striker Radamel Falcao (leg) and defensive trio Phil Jones (shin), Jonny Evans (foot) and Paddy McNair (hamstring) are out. Midfielder Jesse Lingard (knee) remains sidelined, but Antonio Valencia is available after recovering from a hamstring problem.
